As the Fake News Media Glamorizes a Monster, a DACA “KID” Goes on the Lam in Texas

Hey, NBC even does #Fakenews at the Olympics now! – The morons at NBC were forced to issue an on-air apology Saturday for embarrassingly stupid comments made by one of their reporters during Friday’s opening ceremonies.  As the Japanese delegation paraded into the olympic stadium, reporter Joshua Cooper noted that Japan’s Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, was also in attendance, “representing Japan, a country which occupied Korea from 1910 to 1945 but every Korean will tell you that Japan is a cultural, technological and economic example that has been so important to their own transformation.” 

Uh, well, Japan did a lot more than “occupy” Korea during that 35 year reign of terror, and it is doubtful any native Korean family does not have at least one ancestor who was either killed, enslaved or tortured by the despotic Japanese regime.  In a masterpiece of understatement, NBC Saturday morning host Carolyn Manno said “We understand the Korean people were insulted by these comments and we apologize.”  These people literally cannot help themselves, folks.

In a case of really, really bad timing for the Democrats, a DACA “kid” (Average age: 26) is on the run in Texas after he shot and killed a man outside the DJ’s food mart in Harris County, home to Houston.  This 21 year-old “DREAMer”, Judas DeLuna, in fact comes from a vertiable crime family – the DACA version of the Clintons – as his father is currently being processed for his second deportation after having committed a series of crimes and his other DREAMer brother, Eric Deluna, is currently serving a 30-year sentence for participating in a shoot-out in which a federal informant was killed.

I suppose we should all be glad that Judas DeLuna is on the lam in Harris County, which does not offer sanctuary status for illegal immigrant criminals.  If he was living in San Francisco, they’d elect him to the city council.

Meanwhile, one of the actual really good  DACA “kids”, a young man named Hilario Yanez, has become woke to the game the Democrats have been playing with these 800,000 lives.  Appearing on Fox News, Yanez told the host that “The Democratic leadership, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, really have no clear message,” he argued. “We have been confused, I think at the end of the day they have been using us as pawns.”  Well, yeah, exactly.  Smart kid.

Yanez even understands the politics of the whole thing:  “We should have never shut down the government over DACA. We should have never held our American people and our military hostage,” he said, noting that Democrats opted not to solve the DACA problem when they had control of Congress.  Hey, San Franciscans, if you want to put one of these DREAMers on your city council, I think we’ve identified exactly the right guy.  You probably won’t much care for him, but it’d do you all a lot of good to listen to what he has to say.

Meanwhile, the fake news media, led of course by CNN, spent all day Saturday praising and glamorizing the sister of the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea, whose name is Kim Yo Jong.  The shamefulness of this cannot be overstated.  The Kim family has spent the last 40-plus years brutalizing, torturing, enslaving, murdering and starving the people of their country.  Glamorizing this woman is no different than slobbering over Pol Pot or Josef Stalin.  Just when you think all these fake journalists can’t possibly go any lower, they always manage to prove you wrong.

CNN says Miz Kim is “stealing the show”;  The Washington Post calls her the “Ivanka Trump of North Korea”; Yahoo Sports says “All swagger and smiles, Kim Jong Un’s mysterious sister gets her star turn at Winter Olympics.”  This is me, slapping my damn head.

What has Miz Kim done to “steal the show?”  She has alternatively stood quietly, dined quietly, sat quietly and applauded politely and otherwise looked for all the world like a fairly normal person while smiling enigmatically for the cameras like some monstrous parody of Audrey Hepburn.  Granted, simply by looking fairly normal, she does indeed provide a stark contrast to her obvious lunatic brother, but that hardly excuses the fake media for painting this despotic monster as on a par with the daughter of the President of the United States.

At the very same time, all these fake journalists continue to portray the U.S. President as the “real” monster.  Yes, he’s a monster who has cut taxes for pretty much everyone, reinvigorated the U.S. economy that had lain dormant for 8 years, appointed judges who respect the Constitution to the bench, unleashed the U.S. energy industry, basically demolished ISIS and just signed a budget-busting bill that adds billions to the baseline budgets of a vast array of liberal social programs.  But hey, he wants to hold a military parade, so he’s a monster.

As a reminder, Barack Hussein Obama funded and held a military parade of his own over in Syria several years ago.  Here’s a picture of it:

Democrats Prepare to Toss the DACA “Kids” Under the Bus One More Time

The all-knowing, all-seeing, omnipotent “global warming” can now change your personality.  No kidding.  So claim researchers at the Columbia Business School (why are researchers at a “business” school studying global warming?).   “As climate change continues across the world, we may also observe concomitant changes in human personality,” reads the study, published in the journal Nature on Tuesday.  Hey, it’s already working on me – every time I read an article about some fake study making some increasingly bizarre claim about the effects of “global warming”, it pisses me off that much more.

San Fran Nan is even more confused than normal today.  As I write this, she is now in the 7th hour of conducting what can only be termed a “filibuster” on the floor of the house, having been standing there reading stuff since mid-morning.  The trouble is, the filibuster rule only applies in the senate, where she has never been a member.  The creeping dementia she’s been displaying over the last several years has finally set in for good.  Sad!

By the way, in case you’re curious, what San Fran Nan is really doing is putting on a show for the DACA “kids” (average age:  26), because her party is about to toss them under the bus in the budget negotiations, so that they don’t get blamed for shutting down the government again.  Early this morning, Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell announced they’d reached an agreement to fund the government for the remainder of FY 2018 and through FY 2019, removing all the sequester caps in the process.

The deal includes half a trillion dollars in new military and domestic spending over those two years, so all the budget hawks in the House are going to hate it.  But the deal does NOT include any language on the DACA issue, which is going to throw the Democrats’ leftwing base into a frenzy of rage, yet again.  Pelosi and Schumer obviously made a deal with members of their caucus that she would conduct her fake “filibuster” for show on the floor of the House so that none of the Democrat members of the Senate would conduct a real filibuster and potentially kill this deal.

In the end, the Democrats are going to agree to this deal to get their hands on more domestic money they can buy votes with in exchange for a promise on a DACA vote next week.  Which, of course, means they are getting literally NOTHING, since McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan already made that promise as a part of ending the 14% government shutdown that took place just a few weeks ago.

Pelosi and Schumer are betting that their voters are too stupid to remember that little reality.  Sadly, they’re probably right.

The one chink in the armor on this deal is whether the President will sign it when it comes to his desk.  He’s made it very clear he wants a comprehensive deal on immigration issues included in any budget deal, and that is obviously not a part of the Schumer/McConnell deal.  On the other hand, the deal does include most of the increased military spending Defense Secretary Mattis has asked for, and President Trump probably has little real objection to the increases in domestic spending that it includes.

It also seems unlikely that the President would be at all enthusiastic about having a vote on a “clean” DACA bill, given that that issue is his real leverage in getting concessions out of the Democrats on border security and other immigration reforms.  Absent that leverage, none of those reforms will happen.  Period.  Also, since the deal would well and truly bust the budget in a huge way, it would also likely be the death knell for any unfunded infrastructure plan Mr. Trump has stated he wants to pursue.

His campaign promises on immigration, more than any other factor, is what got Donald Trump elected.  And poll after poll shows strong majorities of Americans supporting the President’s position on those issues.  Is he willing to just let that all go in order to get two years of increased military spending?  Because that’s what this deal boils down to for him, and he knows that better than anyone.

The next 48 hours are going to be a very consequential time for our country.

That is all.

[NOTE:  A few minutes after this piece was posted, President Trump tweeted the following:  “The Budget Agreement today is so important for our great Military. It ends the dangerous sequester and gives Secretary Mattis what he needs to keep America Great. Republicans and Democrats must support our troops and support this Bill!”  Obviously, the President intends to sign the bill if it comes to his desk.  Also, Speaker Ryan issued a statement promising a vote in the coming weeks on “immigration reforms,” but not on a “clean” DACA bill that Pelosi says she wants.  Thus, Trump can sign this budget bill and still retain his leverage in immigration negotiations.  Cool.]

The Government Shutdown is Here! The First Round is on Me!

  • Tired of all this Winning yet? – Yesterday’s Campaign Update told you that shutting down the government would be the best outcome for the Republicans.  Lo and behold, we have our government shutdown, as the Republicans completely out-maneuvered the Democrats on one of these things for like the first time ever.  They have President Trump and Chuck Schumer, who completely over-played a terribly weak hand to thank for that.
  • With polls showing that 70% or more of the public wanting to do “something” to “protect” the poor DACA “kids” – many of whom are in their 30s – Schumer and every other Democrat spent the entire week claiming they would not do a deal to extend government funding without including some sort of amnesty for these folks who are in our country illegally.
  • When President Trump called Schumer over to the White House early Friday afternoon, Chuckie boy rushed over with a list of demands in-hand, no doubt expecting Trump to cave, like any of his Republican predecessors would have done in this same situation.  But Trump is not a Bush, and no caving was to be had, so poor Chuckie left the White House in a huff, so obviously angry that he actually passed up a chance to talk to the assembled reporters outside, the first time Mr. Schumer has passed up a chance to have his face on TV since he was in grade school.  At that moment, he no doubt fully intended to get back over the Capitol and hold a presser announcing his caucus was going to shut down the government.
  • But a couple of funny things happened while he was on his way back to the office.  First, he was no doubt told by his staff that the hashtag #SchumerShutdown had been trending on Twitter since Sarah Huckabee Sanders had used the term in her White House press briefing earlier in the day.  Second, CNN released a poll while Schumer was in the Oval Office showing that, by a margin of 56 to 34, people thought it was more important to keep the government open and protect Americans than it is to shut it down over an issue related to 800,000 illegal immigrants.
  • Why was that CNN poll such a big deal?  Well, you have to think like the Democrats think.  While there are still good people in the Democrat Party – no, really, there truly still are a handful of well-intentioned Americans still willing to associate with this band of miscreants – the party itself has no soul.  The party itself really believes in nothing, unless believing in something helps it to obtain and maintain political power.  That’s it.  They don’t really give a damn about these DACA “kids”, unless caring about them helps them in that over-arching goal.  Thus, that CNN poll told them clearly that standing firm on a DACA fix at this time was a horrible political loser for them, bigly.
  • Thus, Schumer and his entire caucus then went into panic mode, and spent the next several hours trying to concoct talking points that would make giving in look like some sort of “victory”, and throwing out an array of alternative plans that would have allowed them to keep the government open while saving a little face.  But Mitch McConnell and his Senate Republicans for once held firm and rejected each and every one of them, even as little Lindsey Graham was conducting shuttle diplomacy between Schumer’s and McConnell’s offices, begging them all to give in one more time.
  • So, we wake up this morning, on the anniversary of Donald Trump’s being sworn into office, with 14% of the federal government technically shut down.  As the Campaign Update said on Friday, this is literally the perfect coda to Trump’s first year in office.  If you want to clean out the swamp, one of the things you simply must do is stop giving in to the Democrats in these idiotic games of political brinksmanship.
  • The real glory in all of this is that President Trump for once does not get all the credit for the GOP finally, at long last, doing the right thing.  The happy fact is that every leader in the congressional GOP played his role perfectly.  Speaker Paul Ryan had his congressional chamber pass the bill that set the tone – with bi-partisan support – on Thursday, and then promptly adjourned the House and sent everyone home so they would not be around to gum up the works any further.  Perfect.
  • McConnell and Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn then played their hand perfectly all day long on Friday, putting out a steady drumbeat of consistent messaging about how the Democrats were ignoring the interests of the millions of American citizens in the name of making a special deal for a relative handful of illegal immigrants, a message that Ryan stayed in town to help push as well.
  • It was all perfect.  Everyone played their roles just right.  They’ll still get blamed for the shutdown by the fake news media, but the panic on the Democrat side clearly demonstrated which party will gain strength from this shutdown come election day.
  • At long last, Donald Trump appears to be rubbing off on members of his own party.  They’re slow learners, but it does seem that these old dogs are capable of learning new tricks.  Tricks like #Winning in situations where they had always lost in the past.  This is a day to celebrate if you really care about this country.
Just another day in President Trump just keeps on #Winning America.
That is all.

Nancy Pelosi Gets A Real Dreamer Lesson

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • That uncomfortable moment when a Democrat politician reaps what she has sown… – San Fran Nan Pelosi just can’t make herself stop being embarrassed in public.  Fresh off of two public speaking appearances in which she sounded like nothing less than a lush stumbling out of a bar at midnight, the House Minority Leader stumbled into an appearance in San Francisco at an event that was designed to show support for her efforts to memorialize Barack Obama’s unconstitutional DACA executive order into statute.  With the room being filled with illegal aliens who have been staying in the U.S. under the protection of this illegal order, San Fran Nan no doubt anticipated a very polite, very friendly audience.  After all, these “Dreamers” are just the bestest, most politest bunch of innocent children ever, right?
  • Uh, not quite.  Turns out the “Dreamers” in attendance were a group of ill-behaved, entitled punks, which should come as a surprise to no one who has paid any attention at all to the nature of their prior demonstrations, which are always covered wall-to-wall by the 24 hour cable news channels.  So it was that, as Dear Nan stepped to the podium to give what no doubt would have been a scripted talk filled with glowing platitudes and the standard Democrat falsehoods, the punks surrounded her and began shouting at her.  San Fran Nan, obviously shocked and literally shaking with fear, tried for several minutes to calm everyone down and give her worthless talk, but the entitled punks were having none of it.  Ultimately, Dear Nan was forced to just meekly leave the podium and return to the safety of her limousine.
  • It was, in one word, awesome.  Awesome that the Minority Leader was utterly humiliated in public, as she deserved to be.  Awesome that these entitled punks are so dimwitted that they somehow think that committing such an act actually helps their cause.  Awesome that San Fran Nan and her fellow Democrats are now having to scramble and try to clean up the PR nightmare these “Dreamers” have become.  Just totally awesome, dudes.
  • We should acknowledge that the punks at this demonstration do not personify the behavior and attitudes of all the 800,000 or so “Dreamers” who remain in our country illegally.  But we should also acknowledge that we don’t see any of those other “Dreamers” getting their butts out on television to disavow them.  Finally, we should note that the “Dreamers” are no different than any of the myriad other leftwing single interest groups that make up the voter base for today’s Democrat Party, in that they are all inevitably represented on television by the most idiotic and radical nitwits among them.
  • I’ve now watched the clip of Dear Nan’s humiliation at least 20 times, and just cannot get enough of it.  It think I’m going to put it on a permanent loop on the TV in our living room.  It’s just the bestest thing ever.
  • Strangely, no apologies to the President were forthcoming from anyone in the fake news media – In other news, I’m old enough to remember when the fake news minions scoffed at Donald Trump’s contention early this year that the Obama Administration had wire-tapped Trump Tower before and after the election.  Yesterday, the fake journalists at CNN meekly reported that Special Counsel Bob Mueller’s staff leakers had leaked the fact that the Obama Administration had…wait for it…wait for it…WIRE-TAPPED PAUL MANAFORT’S HOME IN TRUMP TOWER both before and after the election.
  • I’m old enough to remember last October, when The Most Corrupt Woman In America, along with every other Democrat on the face of the earth, said Donald Trump’s implication that he might question the legitimacy of the election should he lose was tantamount to treason.  On Monday, The Most Corrupt Woman would not rule out the possibility that she might at some point…wait for it…wait for it…QUESTION THE LEGITIMACY OF THE ELECTION!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  I mean, really, who could?

Just another day in Dreamer, Nothing But a Dreamer America.

Welcome To The DC Swamp’s Never-Ending Clown Show!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • What time do Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi arrive? – A group of professional clowns will be holding a rally tonight outside a New York City movie theater where the film “It” is currently showing.  The clowns claim the movie is killing their clown business, with a spokesman for the group claiming he and his partner have had six cancellations in the last couple of weeks because of the film.  No word on who will be manning the anchor desks at CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC while the clown rally is happening.
  • Deal?  Or no Deal? – Speaking of Pelosi and Schumer, they had dinner with President Trump last night, and the discussion obviously centered around what to do about all those poor DACA children (average age, 26) and border security.  Obviously, discussion over a compromise took place, but given the conflicting statements issued by the Democrats and the White House following the dinner, the essential elements of said discussion are very much in dispute.
  • The Democrats issued a statement indicating that a final deal had been cut that would provide additional funding for border security measures – excluding the building of a border wall – in exchange for enshrinement of the DACA provisions contained in Barack Obama’s illegal executive order into law.  The Democrats promised to get to work on legislative language – which they no doubt already have drafted, let’s be honest – posthaste.  Done deal, right?
  • Not so fast, my friend! – Well, not according to White House spokesman Marc Short, who said the Democrats’ statement was – knock me over with a feather! – “misleading.”  “While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to”, Short said,  “no deal on DACA or border wall $$ was reached tonight.”  So once again, the Democrats got caught spiking the ball before they made it to the endzone, kind of like any random running back for the Cleveland Browns.
  • It’s Twitter time! – For his part, the President naturally waited until 5:00 a.m. to chime in on Twitter about the matter, stating in part, “No deal was made last night on DACA. Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent. Would be subject to vote.”  Ok, so, what was that all about, anyway?
  • Well, what it was all about is that this is the obvious general deal to be struck on these two interrelated matters.  The President cannot get the increased border security funding he wants without votes from Democrats, 98% of whom don’t give a damn about border security.  Democrats do give a damn about filling our country with as many third world immigrants as they can, because they view them as future Democrat voters, but they can’t enshrine this 800,000 strong bloc of future DACA voters without votes from Republicans and support from the White House.  They know that DACA provisions do not give the “Dreamers” citizenship or voting rights, but they do allow them to become permanent U.S. residents who can find ways to vote illegally, as happens in Democrat-controlled areas all over the country.  It’s pathetic, it’s un-American, but this is how Democrat minds work.
  • GOP congressional leadership, meanwhile, doesn’t really give a damn about increased border funding either, though they have to pretend to be in order to stave off 2018 primary challengers.  But they do want DACA extended, because the Chamber of Commerce wants as many cheap workers as they can get into this country, so they’re perfectly happy to let the President work out a deal with the Democrats.  They’ll whine loudly about whatever deal is made, just as they did with the President/Pelosi/Schumer deal on budget/debt ceiling/hurricane funding, but then they’ll go out and pass it in a matter of days, again just as they did with the previous deal.
  • Establishment Republicans thus get the best of all sides in any such deal, as they get the policy preferences they want but are absolved of all responsibility for them.  They get to go back to their districts in 2018 and say, “Well, you know, I didn’t like that deal, but (*sigh*), well, the President agreed to it, so I had to just go along,” and hope their sucker constituents will fall for the BS again, just as they’ve fallen for it over the previous three election cycles.  It’s pathetic, it’s un-American, but this is how establishment Republican minds work.
  • So, what last night’s conflicting messages amount to is a preview of the DACA/border security deal to come.  All that really remains to be worked out is to find a way for the President to agree to the deal while saving face on the border wall, which the Democrats will never agree to fund, and which GOP congressional leadership has no real intention of seeking.
  • Again, it’s pathetic, it’s un-American, but this is how Washington DC works.

Just another day in this is how it all works America.

That is all.

Dear DREAMers: Shooting The Finger At America Is Really Bad Strategy

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • You know, it would be easier to have more sympathy for these DACA recipients if we didn’t keep seeing photos and videos of them shooting the finger while holding up profanity-laced, anti-American signs all over social media.  They sort of go against the Democrat/fake news media narrative that these are all just wonderful, smart, patriotic “children” who want to stay in the only country they’ve ever known.
  • In reality, most of them aren’t “children” at all.  Per U.S. government data from 2014, more than half of DACA applicants that year were over the age of 20.  While no one appears to be able to discover the average age of all 800,000 DACA qualifiers in the country – the government obviously wants to keep that a secret since it agitates against the Democrat/fake news media narrative – the best estimates are that it is somewhere around 25-26 years old.  Go figure.
  • Indeed, even the Democrats/media get their narrative confused on the issue constantly, as they alternately pretend that these are just poor, helpless children, or are doctors, scientists and member of the U.S. military.  “Children” do not hold such jobs.
  • Newsweek reports that a recent Center for American Progress study conducted among 3,000 DACA recipients found that fully 9/10ths of the respondents said they are employed, and that their average wage is $17.46 per hour.  Again, “children” do not sport such statistics.
  • Then there is the myth that applicants for DACA benefits have to file their applications before they reach the age of 16.  I saw at least 3 different leftists spout this myth on cable TV on Tuesday.  The fact is that, while DACA applicants must have been brought to the U.S. by their illegal alien parents before they reached the age of 16 in order to qualify, they have until the not-so-childlike age of 31 to get their applications in.
  • Here’s the truth about DACA:  It is an unconstitutional mess created by Barack Obama in an effort to placate the immigration activist segment of the Democrat voter base during the 2012 campaign against Mitt Romney.  It was a cynical move by Obama, who publicly acknowledged on dozens of occasions the did not have the power to change immigration law via executive order.  But knowing the he didn’t have to worry about any critical coverage by the fake news media, he did it anyway, allowing these 800,000 illegal immigrants to cling to a “legal” status that has no real basis in the law.  This is what Democrats refer to as “compassion.”
  • Faced with having to try to defend this unconstitutional atrocity in federal court, Attorney General Jeff Sessions correctly advised President Trump to rescind the clearly illegal order, and put the ball in congress’s court, where it has always belonged.  Surely, fake Republicans like John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake can come to some sort of consensus deal with enough senate Democrats to get a fix done in the  next six months, right?
  • Well, don’t just jump to that conclusion.  It is not at all clear that the Democrat Party really wants to make this change to immigration law in a way that would withstand constitutional scrutiny.  After all, the Democrats had near-super majority status in both houses of congress in 2009-10, and Barack Obama in the White House, and did not lift a finger or spend a moment of time trying to address what they now tearfully claim is an issue of compassion and decency.
  • Instead, the Democrats focused all of their efforts on nationalizing 1/6th of the U.S. economy through Obamacare, in hopes that the Saul Alinsky principle that if you control people’s healthcare, you control their votes would hold true.  That sure has worked out well for them, given that their party lost more than 1,110 seats in congress and state legislatures from 2010 through 2016.
  • On Tuesday, President Trump did what any real president should do:  he rescinded a clearly illegal order by his predecessor and told congress to do its damn job.  While we all know what a crap shoot that is, it is the way this stuff is supposed to work.  When they aren’t shooting the finger at some random camera, the DREAMers make for a sympathetic interest group, but they are not above the law.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.
